FIREARM HISTORY AND FEATURES:
Astra is a Spanish weapons manufacturer that was founded in 1908 and eventually closed in 1997.
In their more recent years they produced some economically priced but good quality and reliable revolver models that were replicas of Colt, Ruger or Smith & Wesson.
The Astra 680 is a short-barreled, double-action/single-action revolver manufactured until 1996.
It was available chambered in .22 LR, .22 Winchester Magnum, .32 S&W Long or .38 Special, and various finishes including standard steel, polished steel and blued steel.
It was intended primarily for civilian use, but also served as a backup weapon or as a concealed carry weapon by Spanish gendarmes.
What is notable about this firearm is that it is one of the very few, small-frame, snub-nose revolvers chambered in .38 Special that have a 6 shot capacity (most other similar sized models only have 5 shot capacities).
This gun is in like new used condition. It is mechanically good and functional.
This revolver seems virtually unused and the overall finish is still in perfect condition.
The original wooden grips are in excellent condition, with only a few, tiny scuff marks in places.
It comes in a tattered cardboard and foam box, but still includes the original manual.
